How We Can Help You Become a Surrogate in New York
We are a group of experienced surrogates providing free guidance and support to moms who want to help a couple start a family in New York. Some of us are on our first journey as a surrogate while some have been surrogates two or three times already.
As surrogates, we’ve come to realize that the application process can be a real challenge that many moms end up giving up before they can even start. On my first journey I had to fill out multiple forms from various agencies, keep track and follow up on them, and jump from one agency to another because I didn’t qualify.
I wasted so much time and I do not want you to do the same.
Here at Surrogacy Is, we eliminated the daunting application process and will do all the following up and surrogacy agency matching on your behalf. All you need to do is fill out our short pre-qualifying quiz and we will do the rest.

Compensation packages vary from agency to agency but in general surrogates get paid anywhere from $40,000 to $70,000. Experienced surrogates and those who carry twins are paid even more. On top of that, surrogates also receive allowances and other payment for medical procedures.
Compensation should be agreed upon before signing an agreement. You can ask for a surrogacy compensation break down so you know exactly what you are getting.
You will also be compensated for lost wages, child care expenses, and all other expenses associated with your surrogacy journey.
